  • First off, understand that high cholesterol is not a disease. Over 2 years ago the American Heart Association even recommended that we start to monitor C-Reactive Protein levels instead of cholesterol because high cholesterol is only 50% predictive of heart attacks.

    In other words, 50% of all heart attacks happen in people with normal cholesterol levels.

    Improving your fiber intake and reducing your intake of processed foods and artificial sweeteners can improve your liver health and improve your cholesterol levels as 90% of the cholesterol in your body is made by your liver.

    You may also want to read "The Cholesterol Myths" By Uffe Ravnskov, MD, PhD. He cites the decades of medical research showing that animal fat does not affect blood-serum cholesterol and also shows why organiations like the American Heart Association no longer back the "anti-cholesterol" campaign.

  • You will have to rely on Cherrio’s and other foods that will help lower cholesterol.

  • Try natural supplements. There is one that is particularly good. It is called Cholest Off. You can find it at Wal-Mart. Ask the Pharmacist if there is anything in it that might hurt you.

  • To lower your cholesterol without medication requires lots of fibre and exercise. Really…

  • The best way to keep saturated fat levels down is to avoid animal products (beef, pork, cold cuts, bacon, and whole-milk dairy products like milk, cheese, butter, and yogurt). Instead, buy low-fat dairy products and low-fat sources of protein (like skinless chicken breasts, cod, tuna, and legumes).

    Polyunsaturated fats, such as those found in nuts and seeds (sunflower, peanut, and walnut oil) have been shown to reduce LDLs. Monounsaturated fats, like olive, peanut and canola oils, have been shown to reduce the "bad" LDLs and increase HDLs.
    Whole grains (such as oatmeal, brown rice, whole wheat flour, and barley) can bolster a low cholesterol diet in several ways. First, the grains themselves have no cholesterol or saturated fat. Second, oatmeal has lots of soluble fiber, which actually helps bind cholesterol and get it out of your body. Whole grains also have nutrients that help the heart (as well as the rest of your body) and, as complex carbohydrates, provide long-lasting energy to keep you going through the day.

    The fiber in whole grains can keep you feeling full longer, too. That can help you avoid binging on unhealthy foods. It can also help keep your total calorie consumption down, a key factor in controlling weight.

    Exercising is also a important to lower your high cholesterol.

    UPDATE: RAZWELL NO ONE SAID ELIMINATING ALL CHOLESTEROL/FAT INTAKE SHOULD BE DONE, BUT TOO MUCH IS NOT HEALTHY EITHER. THE PEOPLE THAT YOU TALK ABOUT SUCH AS ANTHONY COLPO AND THE OTHERS, WOULD BE VERY DISAPPOINTED I AM SURE AS TO HOW YOU TREAT AND CALL PEOPLE NAMES, IN "HONOR OF THEM ETC". IT SHOWS YOU ARE NOT INTELLIGENT WHEN YOU DO THAT. SERIOUSLY, YOU HAVE A MENTAL HEALTH ISSUE AND SHOULD SEEK ANGER MANAGEMENT AND PSYCHIATRIC COUNSELING. YOU ARE A DISGRACE TO THIS SITE, NOT FROM WHAT YOU BELIEVE BUT THE WAY YOU PUSH YOUR IDEAS ON OTHERS AND DO NOT RESPECT WHAT OTHERS SAY AND THEN CALL THEM IDIOTS AND CURSE AT THEM. A TRULY INTELLIGENT PERSON LOOKS AT ALL ASPECTS AND THEN JUDGES FROM THERE WITHOUT CRITICISM. YOU ARE THE ONLY ONE HERE COMPLETELY BRAINWASHED AND YOU ARE ALSO OBSESSED TO THE POINT IT IS JUST PLAIN SCARY HOW YOU REACT AND ACT.
